The xianxia movie Jade Dynasty 诛仙 which stars Xiao Zhan, Meng Meiqi, Li Qin and Tina Tang Yixin is set to premiere this coming September 13.
Based on Xiao Ding’s novel of the same name, many are excited to see Xiao Zhan’s portrayal of the main character Zhang Xiaofan, especially as the actor has recently experienced a surge in popularity after playing Wei Wuxian in the hit series The Untamed. There are even similarities in the sense that Zhang Xiaofan undergoes a major change as the story progresses.
The movie hasn’t been released, but it appears that the producers of Jade Dynasty have already decided to make a sequel. The major giveaway is the change in title in posters and even the latest trailer where a minuscule but visible 1 has been added. The Chinese title Zhu Xian (诛仙) has now been changed to Zhu Xian I (诛仙 I). New Classics Pictures has confirmed that they are in the midst of preparing for the sequel and a script is in the works. Here’s the big question, will the cast be returning?
